The top U.S. military commander in South Korea has canceled a trip to Washington to testify before Congress because of tensions with North Korea.

In an email Sunday to The Associated Press, Army Col. Amy Hannah says Gen. James Thurman will remain in Seoul next week as — quote — "a prudent measure."

Thurman has asked the Senate Armed Services Committee, the House Armed Services Committee, and the House Appropriations subcommittee on defense to excuse his absence until he can testify at a later date.

He was scheduled to testify on Tuesday and Wednesday.

South Korea also announced that its top military commander has put off a planned Washington visit because of the tensions.

The North has threatened to launch attacks on South Korea and the U.S.
